We stayed a week in the apartment in May. The description on the website is accurate. It deserves the superlatives from the previous reviews. The apartment has all you need (plus extras; we appreciated the good design, the laundry, the W-LAN and the flat-screen TV). The apartment is newly decorated and well-maintained. The location is also perfect, in the middle of it all. Don't worry about the proximity to the cable cars, the glazing is good and they don't run in the middle of the night anyhow. Look out the window and enjoy them. We attended a conference for parts of our stay, and our colleagues were really envious...this is better than a hotel room ( the 30 bus or the cable cars take you to less than five minutes walk from the Moscone Centre, so it is really convenient if you are attending a conference there). The hosts (Nick and Melissa) were very nice and attentive through the whole renting process. Melissa's note on shopping for groceries in the area came in very handy, the hills are steep and you loose your orientation quickly if you don't know where you are heading so remember to print it out. The suggestions for restaurants were also good. For families (with kids with tired feet who just want to rest in the sofa after a long day of sightseeing) a suggestion for some good take-away places would be a nice addition! We will recommend this place to our friends.

Owner's Response: Indeed, the flat is much more comfortable than a hotel room! I love to give recommendations and I know many of the restaurants around town, so please ask me! Great suggestion for the take-away menu....I am creating one right now:) Cheers, Melissa
